Although I met Tanya and Zack a few times at their friends’ weddings, it wasn’t until they booked the studio that I got to know more about them. First off, they sent the best ever booking letter I have ever gotten. Ever. The part that sealed the deal was “…after watching you capture our friends weddings with the most beautiful photos it’s always been you!” Now tell me as a wedding photographer, who wouldn’t want to be part of this beautiful couple’s big day?

Tanya and Zack have always enjoyed wine tasting so it was only fitting that their wedding is held at a vineyard with breathtaking views. The weekend festivities started off at the Landsby in Solvang where the couple and most of their guests stayed. My friend and second-shooter Kris and I were so grateful they got us a lovely room at the same hotel, which we enjoyed tremendously.

And even though the rest of the day was beautiful and romantic and absolutely full of love,  it started off with some challenges with intense winds and some critters intent on joining our picture taking. Thankfully, Tanya and Zack are surrounded by amazing friends who helped fix her hair, got the critters out of her dress, even sang a song to cheer everyone up. Despite having to pause a few times from shooting and changing locations, I absolutely loved all the pictures we took from this day!
